Top 3 Web-Design Platforms

Every church should have a website. When people search the name of your church, you want the information they’re looking for to be readily accessible. You also want your site to reflect the style of your church and look professional.

Luckily, there are a few good website design platforms out there that can help your church build the website you need. If you’re not sure which one to go with, don’t worry! Here are the top 3 that our church communicators recommend:

The Church Co

A subscription to the Church Co. allows you to easily get your site designed and developed. Their team will work to meet your needs and answer any questions you have along the way.

According to their website, “(the Church Co.) is a full-featured content hub for your organization complete with Unlimited Page, Blogs, Podcasts, Sermon Manager, Event System, Announcements, Stock Photo Library, Giving, Member’s Portal, Small Group Management, and more.” A few of our communicators have commented on their satisfaction with the platform:

WordPress also has 24/7  support powered by actual people. From configuring settings to publishing pages to helping you pick the perfect design, they’re all ears, all smiles, and all human.

“Word Press is incredibly powerful. However, unless you are a web designer, it can be very frustrating. I am not, so for me each week can bring a new adventure. Some days it’s just more fun than a human should be allowed to have.” – Doug Gaskell
